lyrics

All is forgotten
The king has begotten
But he can’t even say his own name

All of the babies
They made deals with St. Hades
Their children will hang in the rain

He mumbles off course
And then drowns in the rocks
And oh what a solace so late

But on that day
They will be calling his name
They will be calling his name
They will be calling his…

All is forgotten
The king has begotten
He can’t even say his own name

All of the babies
They made deals with St. Hades
Their children will hang in the rain

The tracks have gone off
But the wheel hasn’t stopped
But it will relinquish its claim

All is forgiven
The kingdom is singing
And oh it’s so silent, but they will be calling his name

His name, his name
They will be calling his name
His name, his name
They will be calling his…

The festival horse
As a matter of course
Oh I hear they say he’s quite lame
All bets are closed
As she turns down a rose to her nose
And exclaims:

Oh what a trick
Oh no no he’s not sick
And when he crosses that gate

The jockey will lift
And he’ll be at full sprint
And ‘Oh what a sight’ they will say…they will be calling his name

His name, his name
They will be calling his name
His name, his name
Oh they will be calling his name
His name, his name
Oh they will be calling his name
His name, his name
They will be calling his…

Oh very well it seems
Oh but the jealousy
Makes you so mad and so strange

All of the women
They made eyes with Sicilians
They’re hanging their heads in shame

But I’ve had my vision
I’ve made my decision
I’m tilting my hat to the rain

And on that day
They will be calling my name

My name, my name
They will be calling my name
My name, my name
Oh they will be calling my name
My name, my name
Oh they will be calling my name
My name, my name
They will be calling my name
My name, my name
Oh they will be calling my name
My name, my name
They will be calling my name
